Fall is finally here and sometimes we want a little change of pace, décor, clothing; things to make the change in season official (besides drinking and eating all things pumpkin spice!). How do you bring that little touch of fall into your coastal décor? Let’s look at some options.
In the kitchen/dining room area, driftwood lends itself to fall leaves, don’t you think? After all, wood comes from trees and trees have leaves, so let’s get some driftwood orbs and add some silk fall leaves and put a few of the leaves into the orbs, then add a small pumpkin or two, and you’ll have the combination as a decorative item on a shelf, countertop, or table. Remember the cabinet knobs, and use these loon or mallard cabinet knobs because many species migrate in the fall.
Add to that a metal pumpkin patch art piece and a leaf cutting board, a driftwood turtle and (if you have sewing skills), get some fall placemats and sew a few of the silk leaves to it. A metallic leaf charger under each dinner plate will add a special touch, and a fall centerpiece with some white shells added to it will be a perfect finishing touch.
In the living room, there is always a need for an autumnal throw and toss pillows, lots of toss pillows. Bring the coastal part into the room with an orange sea shell that you turn into a night light with this kit. Add some spondylus shells in a bowl with the silk leaves from above, a tan cloth art piece with a sea shell on it, or some basket-like wall pieces shaped like a crab, seahorse or turtle. A piece of red-orange coral, a sea fan, a set of book pumpkins on a side table and some mother of pearl lamps will work well in this setting. Finish with a wooden pumpkin with sea shell accents!
I don’t know if you decorate for the different seasons on the front porch, but you can fall into coastal there with a seated scarecrow, surrounded with blue pumpkins that will match his shirt, and put these metal wall art pieces behind the scarecrow. I think that’s enough for a porch, so let’s look at other possibilities.
In the bathroom, you can use a cute shower curtain, a sea shell trinket/ring dish and some peel-and-stick shell wall tiles on an accent wall (I think only on an accent wall). Remember to add the fly fishing cabinet knob to your vanity. People do fly fish in the fall. You may want to do two of the night lights suggested above so you can use one here in the bathroom. Use these shell shower curtain hangers and some fall café window curtains for the final touch.
No matter your décor choices, you can integrate other things into it when the seasons change. It’s not about sticking to one theme and ignoring the seasons. It’s about figuring out how to make things work together so that you can celebrate whatever things you want in your own way. Fall into coastal or spring into seafaring, it’s up to you.

Have you ever looked at the cabinets and thought that there should be a little something more? Something that gives the cabinets a little “Umph!”? Ever considered the possibility of making your cabinet knobs “face” each other?
